Michele Young-Stone 

When: Wed., April 28, 7 p.m. 2010

If (like this writer), you were horribly afraid of lightning as a child and traumatized by, say, watching it hit a tree and set it on fire, you might approach Michele Young-Stone's novel The Handbook for Lightning Strike Survivors with a great deal of uneasiness. Young-Stone (a lightning strike survivor herself) begins her story in Chapel Hill with Becca Burke, a young girl who is struck not once but twice. Her destiny is intertwined with that of Buckley R. Pitank, who witnessed a strike that forever changed his life. When they finally meet, they are forced to examine their lives and their relationships to their respective families. Young-Stone writes vivid descriptions of lightning strikes throughout North Carolina, capturing the fury and terror of a strike (which might hit a bit close to home for some). She'll read from and sign copies of her book. —Zack Smith
